Abstract : The EQUATE is a computer controlled automatic test system for use in the performance of acceptance testing on a wide variety of circuits, assemblies and systems and the on-line generation, editing and validation of test programs. The system is designed for use by the engineer or technician inexperienced in computer programming. The computer is used to control the generation of UUT(Unit Under Test) waveforms and analyze UUT response signals. In this manner both standard and non standard waveforms may be generated by one general purpose device. All waveforms and normal parameters are measured and analyzed. Special design features of EQUATE will be presented, such as the optical dial and meter reader and the UUT control driver whose functions are to reduce operator participation in the acceptance tests. Conclusions will include a summary contracting EQUATE with classic ATE designs.
